The District round of the RIBI Young Musician took place on Sunday, March 17th in Reading. There were three competitors being sponsored by the Ascot Club taking part. Sarah Aizawa on violin (our local round winner), Sandro Shargarodsky on Piano and Anastasia Adam on vocals. All performances were of an exceptional standard and Sandro was placed runner-up in the instrumental section. He has, therefore, progressed to the Regional round to be held in Godalming, Surrey, in April.
As an aside, all three musicians plus Abbey Hardy, playing the oboe, have been selected to perform alongside the Westminster Chamber Orchestra later this year.
Congratulations to all four musicians, their parents and tutors for all of the hard work that they put in to reach such high performance levels.
Sandro took part in the Regional Finals in Godalming, Surrey. Although he played exceptionally well, the competition was of the highest standard we have seen and he was not placed in the first two.
